10 picnic tips to make your picnic a fun, delicious, and stress-free outdoor feast!
1. Location, Location, Location
It’s important to consider your location and the time of day when planning your picnic. Whether you are dining al fresco at a park or beach, you want to pick a location with both plenty of shade and sun. It’s nice to have options, so pick a spot with shade trees or bring a large umbrella or canopy to provide you with relief from the sun.
2. Prepare a simple menu
It’s easy to create your very own effortless picnic spread; just remember that simple is often the best. Plan ahead and decide what foods travel well and are easy to eat while sitting on the grass. Pack food in individual containers, DIY wax paper bags, and disposable lunch boxes with labels for each person for that extra-special touch.
